Towie Star Mario Falcone Suspended Over Drugs Story
Reality TV star banned from Marbella trip in wake of tabloid cocaine claims...
Mario Falcone has been suspended from the cast of The Only Way Is Essex following allegations of drug-taking.
The 26-year-old scripted reality star was the subject of a video "exposé" in The Sun On Sunday - with footage allegedly showing him snorting cocaine at a private party.
And now a spokesperson for the show has confirmed to Digital Spy that he is being banned from the show for the time being.
"Mario will not be taking part in filming in Marbella while this matter is looked into," the source said.
Falcone has also apparently been blocked from appearing in the show's 2015 calendar.
The former beau of Lucy Mecklenburgh has previously opened up about his battles with depression.
